Yeah I'm using a Kimbrough but I might try putting a new one on, just to see if that helps. I have the toe blocks on order, right now I'm just at the original kit setup for front and rear toe...so that will change.

I have a kimbrough #114 and I'm wondering what hole to use? And I'm guessing it's still supposed to be at 5 degrees when you install it??

Another question, I'm at the step where I connect the electronics to make sure the servo is in neutral, and the motor starts spinning without me giving any throttle. (the motor came connected to the ESC without plugs)

What do I do?

Nevermind on the motor question, I didn't realize I needed to go through set-up procedures.
I still am confused on attaching the Kimbrough though

Zac,

Attach the ball to the servo saver in the hole that is furthest to the outside of the car or furthest to the left. Then allign the ball with the servo as shown in the instructions. If you PM me your e-mail address, I can send you a photo of mine that might help.

Do you need to drill into the Kimbrough to make the ball fit? I have the white one and the holes are too small. If you did drill, what size drill did you use?

Everything's finished in my car except for the electronics(Skipped past that part to finish it up). I'm just trying to decide wether to dremel down the chasis or get different gears. My pinion is too big.
Got pictures if anyone wants to see my almost completed car..

And there's a race tomorrow, but I don't know if I want to drive it on a track without a lot of practice.

I have two Futaba S3003 standard size servos. How do you think they'll do? I'm think going to eventually get a S9551 but these came with the kit as a bundle and I thought they might last me a while and be decent enough.

I wanted to thank all of you that helped me!

I'm going to be using that until I have a problem with it.

If you hit anything with the front end, you'll find that Tamiya stock servo saver will get "stuck" a little to the left or right and your steering will drift to one side. You'll be riding your steering trim on the track to keep it straight. That was the problem I had with it, that made me go with the Kimbrough.

Did you drill a hole to make the ball connecter fit?

the stock tamiya servo saver (the black plastic one with the black plastic saver ring) does suck big time.

for the high torque version (3 steel rings) i usually just add a drop of thick CA clue to either side of the steel rings. the CA won't keep stuck with the steel rings in the event of a crash but the CA bonded to the plastic acts like a filler to lessen the side-to-side play.

Now I need to cut away at the motor mount for this 36 pinion to fit, but don't know if that's a good idea. Already dremelled down a peice of chasis but didn't realize it would touch the motor mount.

Someone recomended 105 tooth 64 pitch spur and pinions between 46-49. earlier(but I wanted to use the kit spur gear) would these fit better or would I need to cut away more to make these fit for the 4.3-4.5 F.D.R.?

I'm running a 94T spur with a 43T pinion (64p)... no need to cut or dremel anything...
